Mothers tend to embarrass us on daily occasions. Whether it would be baby pictures, “adorable” stories from our childhood or just publicly doing something we don’t approve of, they can be a pain in the neck. But in Derek Codd’s case his own mother turned him over to the police.
The 19 year old Codd and an accomplice robbed a Lake Worth house. While being too preoccupied with other people’s stuff, he forgot his own cell phone at the crime scene. Allegedly, he left his phone on an extremely treacherous spot – the kitchen counter, so it was easily spotted by the police. While they were examining the crime scene, Codd’s mother called him. The police inspector immediately picked up the phone after the caller ID said “Mom” and he learned Codd’s name in no time.
Codd’s accomplice was found carrying 49 stolen jewelry pieces. The two were arrested and put in their rightful place – behind bars.
